Frequently Asked Questions
My in-progress upload says ' No metadata describing files found. Waiting for user to enter metadata' - what do I do?
There are 2 XML files that get created during the import of any recording in the collection:
The first file gets created when you submit the import form to the collection. If that file does not exist, you can create it by editing the details page and clicking Update.
The second file gets created by filling out File Options. Just click the link on the left side of the details page and fill out the form as accurately as you can.
If either of these files are missing, your Contribution may give you this message. Please note that once the files get created, it takes 5-10 minutes before the system notices them and moves on to the next stage.
